Abstract [en]

Quantified EMG and calculated mechanical muscular power output data were combined to provide further analysis of muscular function during ergometer cycling. The single-joint muscles; gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis and soleus all showed a more predictable function with approximately linear relationship between calculated power output and recorded EMG. The function for the two-joint muscles was found to be more complex. Biceps femoris seemed to act mainly as a hip extensor and medial hamstring mainly as a knee flexor. Gastrocnemius medialis was proposed to act more as a plantar flexor and gastrocnemius lateralis as a knee flexor.
